Appearances

Overview

"Please Remember" was written by Rivers Cuomo and likely first demoed in February of 1995, at a studio in Hamburg, Germany, where Weezer had to stay for a week to allow bassist Matt Sharp to fly back to the United States after his father suffered a stroke. The song was intended as an interstitial track for the unrealized concept album Songs from the Black Hole. Cuomo pitch-shifted his vocals to sing the character of Maria. "Please Remember" immediately follows the track "Oh Jonas." In the song, Jonas pleads with Maria to remember that he is only a friend and that he can't possibly settle down with her. The lyrics to the song were released by Cuomo to his blog in the 2000s, and the song was officially releaased in 2008 as part of the compilation album Alone II: The Home Recordings of Rivers Cuomo.

Lyrics

[JONAS:]
Please, remember I'm only a friend

[MARIA:]
A friend who boinks me

[JONAS:]
You're too crazy to settle down with

[MARIA:]
Then why lead me on?

[JONAS:]
I don't love you, but I can't help myself

[MARIA:]
I'll make you love me

[JONAS:]
Please, Maria, it won't ever be

[MARIA:]
I'll make you love me
I'll make you love me
I'll make you love me

[JONAS:]
Won't ever be
Won't ever be

[JONAS:]
I love you

[MARIA:]
Love me

[JONAS:]
I do
